— About the Robot Zoo:
In this traveling exhibit, children can explore the biomechanics of complex animal robots to discover how real animals work. Cutaways expose the animals’ insides as a host of easily recognizable machine parts and gadgets, such as shock absorbers and pumps, that demonstrate what makes animals work. By comparing anatomy, environments and size of the actual creatures to the mechanic counterparts, The Robot Zoo provides fantastic new insights and hands-on fun for discovering just how animals work. This exhibit will be at the Austin Nature and Science Center through January 25. For more info, visit the ANSC website.
This sounds like it will be fun and educational for the whole family!
